Known as Dick to his many friends and coworkers, he had a long and distinguished career in journalism. Beginning in radio in the late 50s, Dick became a reporter at CHCH TV in Hamilton in the early 60s and subsequently News Director, a position he held until 1982 when he resigned to teach Broadcast Journalism at Mohawk College also in Hamilton. Several of his students went on to serve as news reporters and anchors on television.

In 1985 his longtime friend and pioneer TV ministry host David Mainse asked Dick to help Crossroads Communication become licensed as the first fully operational Christian TV station in Canada. After much hard work and prayer CTS launched in 1998  with Dick serving as the President. He continued in this role until his retirement in 2007 .
